I just cleared my driveway/sidewalk and now there is snow pushed onto it again?
Unfortunately, pushing snow onto driveways and sidewalks is an unavoidable consequence of plowing. Plow operators do not intentionally push the snow on to your driveway/sidewalk. They cannot control the amount of snow coming off the edge of the blade and it is not practical to lift plows at every driveway throughout the Village. Plow drivers have to get as close to the curb line as possible to clear catch basins to allow melting snow to drain properly. The main priority for the Village is to keep streets safe to travel for emergency vehicles and motorists. The link below shows how to avoid the "second shovel" in addition to how to clear fire hydrants. It is also important to emphasize that it is against Village Ordinance to push snow into the street. Doing so causes for severe traffic hazards. Residents are encouraged to contact the Police Department at 847-362-4449 if they witness snow being placed in the street as it's happening.
